Why is it so important to ID your dogs or cats for safety? Having up to date identification on your pet greatly increases the chances of return should your pet escape or get lost.
If your pet escapes your home or yard and is running loose, a neighbor or other person is much more likely to stop to help your pet if they are clearly wearing a collar and tags.
Having an ID tag with your pet’s name and your phone number makes it easy for the good Samaritan to act quickly without much effort.
Even if your pet is micro chipped, if they don’t have a collar and tags the chances of someone helping are reduced greatly.
Just think about it. If you saw a dog without a collar and tags running loose, would you take the time to pick it up only to have to take it to a vet or local shelter to be scanned for a microchip??? Highly unlikely for most people.
